What investment strategy should I pursue?
The investment strategy differs from investor to investor. First and foremost, as an investor you have to decide how much money you want to invest with Cashare. Solely invest money you do not need in the short-term. As with any investment: The higher the risk the higher the return.
In order to have keep the risk at bay, it is necessary to invest in various loan projects in order to diversify your investment. It is hence advisable not to invest say CHF 2’000 in a single loan, but to invest CHF 100 in 20 different loans. Should a loan default, the loss can be absorbed much more easily that way.
